A future Christian-free zone in the Middle East? A tree is known by its fruit

The killing of Christian copts in Egypt is another tragedy that we are witnessing now against non-Muslims in the Arab world. There is clearly a connection between what is happening in Iraq and what just happened in Egypt. Should we condemn Pastor Terry Jones of Florida who made headlines for threatening to burn the Koran?

Are we going to a “Christian-free zone” in the Middle East?  Many countries, including Iran, have condemned the bombing in Egypt. But, Iran contradicts itself. Their leaders preach intolerance and sponsor extremist groups such as Hezbollah and Hamas. As usual, Al Qaeda is blamed. It could be any extremist group, but, Al Qaeda is a brand name. As the Igbo of Nigeria say, “A tree is known by its fruit.”
